ARS HÄME '10 Art Week 21.-29.8.2009


The theme for the second Art Week is FACTORY, and the focus will be on environmental art and art created from recycled material.

All the events will take place within Forssa and will become a unity through the theme and materials; the events will include: an Art Textile and Design Glass exhibition in VALKAISUSALI, WHITE HALL, in the former Finlayson factory, environmental art scattered around the river Loimijoki, workshops organized by professional and amateur artists, as well as art seminars.

The Art Week will have lots on offer: after the opening, art works will be created in workshops in schools, workplaces and various institutions that will be put on show around the town; the topics in the art seminar will vary from land art to recycled art as well as visions of future use of the empty factories. The importance of the environment for people will be part of the discussion, as well as the use of art in architecture; the art club evening will offer cross genre art happenings as well as offering a forum for continuing discussion.

The art exhibition in the Finlayson VALKAISUSALI will be open every day during the week and the works situated around town will be exhibited according to the time agreed with the artists. The Art Week highlights working together and encouraging different communities to participate in creating art and enjoying it.

In the forthcoming years ARS HÄME’s Art Week will be held in other towns in the Häme region, e.g. Hämeenlinna 2011.
